Los Angeles, May 17 (IANS) Michael Jackson’s nephew Taj Jackson finds dancer-choreographer Wade Robson’s accusations that his uncle had molested him when he was a child “sickening”. He says he will “defend” his late uncle at any cost.
In 2005, during Michael’s trial on child-molestation charges, Robson had testified that the singer didn’t act inappropriately towards him and the late pop singer was acquitted of all charges, reports eonline.com.
But Robson later filed a lawsuit against Jackson’s estate and said that he and MJ performed “sexual acts” on each other at Jackson’s Neverland Ranch.
Taj tweeted: “What people will say and do for money and to stay relevant is sickening. Desperate times call for desperate measures.”
“I don’t want to go on TV. I don’t want publicity, I just want the truth. I always told my uncle Michael that I would take a bullet for him. I mean it today just as much as I meant it back then. Since my uncle Michael is no longer here to defend himself. I will,” he further wrote on twitter.
